Fields, Joyce I.
Early Child Development and Care, v131 p93-106 Apr 1997
Evaluated five intelligence test instruments for use with Malaysian children: Raven's Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), WISC-R, School Failure Tolerance (SFT), Scale for Rating Behavior Characteristics of Superior Students (SRBCSS), and Parent Checklists. Found that Raven's SPM was an effective screening test, and the WISC-R the best measure to subsequently classify the gifted; the other instruments were ineffective. (EV)
